Description

Inspired by Fred Meyer's talk at #wcus this year (https://2015.us.wordcamp.org/session/explaining-hard-things-to-humans-the-principles-of-effective-technical-communication/) (slides: http://wpshout.com/wcus/#/) I suggest we modify the language of the "Success" message to be a little less snarky and more humane. We assume the installation went well when folks see this message. However, as technology will technology, this could be a point when folks are frustrated because something didn't go as planned.
